  2. False

     

Training Tips: The AHAP Staff Challenge is the perfect way to regularly train your staff. If the challenge is a question, forward the e-mail to your staff. Once they answer the question, they will receive immediate feedback on their answers.

If your staff doesn't have e-mail access, use this question in different, creative ways. You can use the question and answer in:

  • Posters
  • Intranets
  • Tent cards placed on tables in staff lounges and cafeterias
  • Handouts or quizzes distributed at team meetings
  • Reference binder available in staff areas
  • Paycheck stuffers
  • Newsletters
